Started with Morrowind and I still remember how pissed I was when my arrows couldn't hit the guy standing like a statue right in front of me.
I had the exact same experience. Started it up, found a guide on this website, made my character according to the recommendations, spent a few hours trying to steal THIS ONE KEY sitting on a shelf near the guy who ends your character creation sequence, get some gear that's geared towards what my character does, and head into what the guide called "Baby's First Dungeon"; something meant to be an ease into the game's fighting mechanics.
I head in there and kill the melee bandit and the ranged bandit (using cheats so that my health continually refills, since I had the XBOX version). Then, I meet a mage, and for some reason, I just CANNOT hit him. Despite my epic health regen cheats, he still killed me. I just sat there, stunned, completely unsure of what the hell just happened. All of my attacks missed, and the mage killed me, despite the cheats I was using. I don't usually play games with cheats unless I feel it'd be fun, and in this case, not even cheats could make up for poor luck. Stopped playing it, never picked it up again. When I'm playing a first-person style game, I expect that when my giant freaking sword cleaves through their bodies, that it will AT LEAST take damage.
Technically, Morrowind. Tried it, hated it, forgot about it. Played Oblivion, fell in love, went back and played Morrowind, was reminded why I hated it. Damn game was more of a chore to play than it was fun at times.
pretty much the same for me except i skipped Oblivion and went with Skyrim
Well, I could be wrong, but I believe diversity is an old, old wooden ship that was used during the Civil War era.
